Lawton, who played in 13 games with three starts this season, will miss the Raiders' final two games this season and lose nearly $63,000 in pay. A free agent next year, Lawton also would have to sit out the first two games of the 2010 regular season with whatever team he signs.

The NFL sent out a two-paragraph statement Thursday announcing the suspension. Raiders coach Tom Cable wasn't available for comment.

Lawton signed with the Raiders as a free agent in August 2008. He also has played for the New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts in his four-year NFL career.
